Here at the Diaper Drive, we are always excited when organizations want to pull people together to host a diaper drive. Brenda Hugo at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Columbia Heights organized a drive to collect diapers and wipes.
Some of our wonderful volunteers counted up the diapers and wipes, and we are thrilled to announce that Brenda and the community at St. Matthew donated 947 diapers and 192 wipes.
Let’s put that in perspective. Most babies go through about 200 diapers per month in the first few months. This drive collected enough diapers to keep a baby clean and healthy for nearly five months.
Are you part of an organization that would want to host a drive like Brenda did? Let us know! We’d love to work with you to organize your diaper drive.
